This is the full 10-26-08 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.
On this episode we discuss the deepening economic crisis and the $700 billon dollar bailout package passed by the congress earlier this month with Dean Baker, Co-Director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR). CEPR is one of the country’s leading progressive economic think tanks and Dean Baker has been one of the harshest critics of the bank bailout.
The episode also includes the comments of David Moberg, a senior editor of In These Times and Richard Berg, President of Teamsters Local 743 at an event titled “Progressive Politics in the Post-Bush Era.”
